Peyton Manning

Peyton Manning is known for sending handwritten letters, and to celebrate the 18th anniversary of his being drafted, one of his sponsors is putting a new twist on those words. Gatorade found some notable recipients of those letters and asked them to read the words on camera as a way of returning Manning's salute to them.

Per Gatorade's release, here are the people featured in the video:

-- Tony Dungy: Manning's coach with the Colts.

-- Jon Scott: Colts VP of equipment operations.

-- David Cutcliffe: Manning's quarterback coach at Tennessee.

-- Pam Frenzel: Mother of Tyler Frenzel. Manning connected with Tyler during a visit to the Peyton Manning Children's Hospital at St. Vincent in Indianapolis. They remained in close contact until Tyler, who had leukemia, died in 2004 at age 9.

-- Jeff Saturday: Manning's center with the Colts.

-- Eli Manning: Peyton's younger brother.

-- Demaryius Thomas: Broncos receiver.

-- Derek Jeter: Yankee legend.
